Diagnosis


Diagnosis and Symptoms

  • Lower dull aching back pain which can travel to the buttocks, hips, thighs.
  • If the facet of the neck are involved then symptoms may cause stiffness,  headaches, shoulders pain and arms pain.
  • Pain often is worse with certain back and neck movements especially extending the back/head backwards and bending side to side.
  • Muscle spasms can be present over the areas of the involved facet joints


X-rays, MRI scans, CT scans, and bone scans can help with identifying the condition, but quite often appear as normal.
